Iron Man 2 Nominated for Visual Effects Oscar

ComingSoon.net has posted the nominations for the 83rd Annual Academy Awards which include one superhero movie – Iron Man 2. The sequel’s Janek Sirrs, Ben Snow, Ged Wright and Daniel Sudick were nominated for Best Visual Effects and will face Alice in Wonderland, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1, Hereafter and Inception in the category. We’re actually a little surprised that Hereafter got in instead of TRON: Legacy.

Five stars who will be appearing in upcoming superhero movies got nominated as well for their respective films, including Thor star Natalie Portman (Black Swan), The Dark Knight Rises star Christian Bale (The Fighter), X-Men: First Class star Jennifer Lawrence (Winter’s Bone) as well as The Avengers stars Jeremy Renner (The Town) and Mark Ruffalo (The Kids Are All Right).
